The Guatemalan illegal immigrant charged with raping and impregnating an Ohio 10-year-old who traveled to Indiana for an abortion was listed as a minor in the report the Indiana-based abortionist sent to authorities.
Dr. Caitlin Bernard reported that the alleged rapist was approximately 17-years-old in an official filing to the Indiana Department of Health obtained Thursday by Fox News Digital. On Wednesday, Ohio authorities charged 27-year-old Gerson Fuentes, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala, with rape of a minor under 13 years old in the case.
Fuentes confessed to the crime to Columbus Police Department investigators, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said in a statement Wednesday.
However, the 10-year-old’s mother said her daughter was “fine” and “everything they say about [Gerson Flores] is a lie” when confronted Thursday by a Telemundo reporter.

The alleged rape made headlines earlier this month after Bernard told The Indy Star on July 1 she had performed an abortion for a young rape victim who she said was forced to cross state lines from Ohio in order to receive the procedure. Ohio implemented a six-week abortion ban shortly after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which granted women the federal right to an abortion.
“It’s hard to imagine that in just a few short weeks we will have no ability to provide that care,” Bernard told The Indy Star at the time, referencing a potential similar abortion ban that could go into effect in Indiana following the high court’s ruling.
Following Bernard’s comments, President Biden referenced the incident during a speech on July 11 and, on July 3, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was asked during a CNN interview whether she would force young victims of rape “to have a baby.”
In addition, after Fuentes was charged Wednesday, Republican Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita announced he would investigate Bernard for failing to report the abortion, saying “failure to do so constitutes a crime in Indiana.” But the documents obtained Thursday by Fox News Digital show Bernard successfully filed the proper report with the state on July 2.
“My client, Dr. Caitlin Bernard, took every appropriate and proper action in accordance with the law and both her medical and ethical training as a physician,” Bernard’s lawyer Kathleen DeLaney said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “She followed all relevant policies, procedures and regulations in this case, just as she does every day to provide the best possible care for her patients.”
“She has not violated any law, including patient privacy laws, and she has not been disciplined by her employer,” DeLaney continued. “We are considering legal action against those who have smeared my client, including Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, and know that the facts will all come out in due time.”
Bernard should see her medical license suspended and she should be arrested
BERNARD SHOULD BE HELP TOTALY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS WHOLE THING CHARGE THEM WITH BEING A ACCEMECE TO THE RAPISTS GIVE THEM 50 YEARS GIVE THE R APISS lIFE WITHOUT PAROLE AND MAKE THEIR OPEN BORDERS IIDOTS PAY FOR THEIR UPKEEP
The doctor reported the age she was told. Do you imagine the rapist came in with the child for the consultation? The information she had was what the girl or family provided. The FACT that she had to deal with professionally and compassionately was a pregnant 10-year-old child. You would nail her to a cross for doing so, for the sake of your backward, f*cked up politics.
Idiot republicans who first denied the story, and then attacked the doctor by claiming she didn’t comply with the law, are now reduced to waving around an irrelevant detail in an effort to cover their worthless, lying asses.
Apparently you are too damn stupid to know the difference between saying a story is not true and questioning the validity of a story. Perhaps you would like to tell us who you are referring to as having “denied” the story? But I doubt it. Your m.o. is to let your mouth write checks your ass can’t cash.
How else would the doctor have known an age to give? Do you imagine the rapist told her? The doctor would have no motive for lying. Her patient’s unfortunate situation didn’t depend on the age of the rapist one way or the other. If anything, a responsible adult male would be even more reason to pity the plight of the child, and sympathize with the doctor’s decision to help her—assuming, of course, that one is more concerned with compassion for the child than politics.
Since your own assertion is the illogical one, it’s up to you to prove otherwise.
No, he was still kicked back in the recliner sucking down cervezas. It wasn’t until WE began asking questions and demanding answers (y’all didn’t care about the rape, just using the girl as a prop for unlimited and unrestricted abortion) that we found out about the rapist.
I realize that you are clueless as to the behavior of children, being yourself childless, but do you really think that a 10 year old girl who has been raped knew the age of her rapist and told abortion advocate, Dr. Caitlin Bernard? Or was it the mother who told the abortionist the age of the rapist?
There are more holes in this story that a 5 pound hunk of Swiss cheese.
Do you think the 10-year-old drove herself from Ohio to Indiana? Consider the possibility that someone else provided inaccurate details to the doctor.
I don’t think ANY of this happened, either the way Democrats have illegally reported it, or at all.
We need libel and slander laws to take away Dems propaganda tools such as the Russia Collusion hoax and this new “10 year old rape” hoax.
RESPECT THE LAW AND THE SC.
It’s a branch of government.
Nathan, as you already know, Comrade Greggie will use this story to advocate for the slaughter of unborn children, one at a time, and could care less that a little girl, only 10, was raped. Who the rapist was is not important to him, just that an unborn child was murdered.
You seem to care more about children that don’t yet exist than those that actually do. The GOP perversely reflects that attitude. Hence, my growing contempt.
Comrade Greggie, you showed no concern for the violated little girl. Your only concern was with what you believed was her inability to get an abortion in Ohio.
Had you been concerned for the little girl you would have been wanting to know if the rapist has been arrested. But you never mentioned that because YOU DID NOT CARE.
An abortion was the one meaningful remedy to the child’s situation—which the Ohio GOP deprived her of. All you care about is that it points out the evil consequences of a law devoid of all compassion for a who already exists.
You have no compassion for millions of women who have deeply personal reasons for choosing not to continue a pregnancy.
No, they didn’t. She could have gotten an abortion in Ohio. Her mother was too busy trying to cover it up. Why do you INSIST on being a f**king liar?
Seriously? Greg we immediately wanted the perp arrested, you wanted her to have privacy to be molested over and over. Maybe she has a little sister the perp was raping as well. Nope the libs want to keep abortions and birth control for kids secret from the parents. Sexualize them in school and let them get nasty STDs.
It is YOU that doesn’t have a single concern that a 9 year old girl was raped by her mother’s boyfriend and the mother and Bernard tried to cover it up. All you care about is using misery and tragedy to promote your death cult.
The circumstances and absurdity of the story pretty much make it dismissable in the greater discussion about abortion.
Like the Russia hoax and every other concocted story about Trump, it’s typical lowbrow propaganda meant to do the uneducated and easily duped constituency of the Democrat Party.
If we could just get these people a little more education, I think things would change for the better.
The left relies on the average uneducated, ignorant voter to give them support by way of simple deception.
The story WAS a lie, dumbass. The girl never had to leave Ohio to get the abortion she (her wetback parents) waited 6 weeks, right up to the last minute, to get. With the left’s penchant for lying (and they were, and they LIE about everything, including lying that abortion is banned), it was reasonable to doubt the girl even existed, but the PRIMARY objection was with the LIE that because of the cruel, unfair, onerous abortion laws, she had to cross state lines for an abortion.
But note that it wasn’t until REPUBLICANS began asking questions and demanding answers that it was discovered who the rapist was and he was arrested. Or, is that simply something you didn’t care about?
Read the applicable Ohio law. The girl was over six weeks, the point at which a fetal heartbeat is detectable using special instruments. There are only two exceptions at that point to Ohio’s current abortion ban:
It’s possible that it could be successfully argued in court that one of these exceptions might apply; whether the doctor performing such an abortion would be imprisoned and have his or her license pulled would depend on the sympathies of a judge or jury, not on any degree of medical certainty.
Dave Yost is holding out the possibility that a doctor wouldn’t be charged, or would be acquitted, as if it were a legitimate exception to a draconian law. IT ISN’T. It’s just a way of denying the real world consequences of an oppressive, inhumane Ohio law, passed against the will of a majority of the population.
But, two weeks after she was raped, she was not over six weeks. Three weeks after she was raped, she was not over six weeks. FOUR weeks after she was raped, she was not over six weeks. Even FIVE weeks after she was raped, she was not over six weeks. Is this not true?
And, even OVER six weeks, she was still eligible for an abortion under Ohio law. So, the story is a complete and total lie.
Do parents normally check their 10-year-old daughters weekly for pregnancy?
I’m not wasting any more of my evening on such stupidity.
They do if she’s been raped, you stupid asshole. And if they don’t, who’s fault is that?
The entire time greg spends here is a total waste of his time. His comments do nothing but create circular meaningless conversations. He is a paid troll as Nathan Blue says. No commenter comes here regularly to be dismissed time and time again. If he is not being paid then he is more stupid than anyone could have imagined.
Consider my visits a measure of the danger you idiots represent to a nation and Constitution that I twice took an oath to protect.
If they suspect, they either take immediate action, or are unfit parents and criminally negligent. “Checking weekly” because they “suspect” puts a parent into the second category.
You should stop wasting your life on all of the stupidity that you post here.
You’re a paid troll, or a quisling.
Both are quite disgusting, and direct enemies with the United States of America.
Run on home, boy.
The religious wing of the Trump cult: Fed Up Texas Paul SLAMS Republicans for saying there is no Separation of Church and State
This is precisely what Billy Graham warned Christians about.
“The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it.”
Speaking of a waste of time…
There is no Constitutional separation of church and state. That is a myth.
Blowing off the FIRST statement of the FIRST Amendment is an accurate measure of constitutional ignorance.
The Myth of the Separation of Church and State
The US is under attack by the woke atheist religionists who seek to abolish all other religions.
Christians continue to defend the right of all Americans to the freedom of their own religion. Only judeo Christianity allows for such things, after all.
Paul’s opinion is lazy, hackneyed, and completely unprovable.
It’s also false.
Leftists are the fundamentalist religionists strawmen from 1983 they claim to be fighting.
Fools spout such opinions frequently but seldom provide any rational argument to back them up. Instead, you get a chorus of sock puppets singing harmony.

Conservatives’ Attack Against Abortion Provider In Child Rape Case Implodes
Yeah so Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita’s (R) and other conservatives’ spin on the story of an obstetrician-gynecologist providing an abortion for a 10-year-old rape victim just fell apart. Dramatically.
Rokita and others had claimed that the doctor didn’t report the incident and is therefore the real villain in the story. That line of attack completely imploded yesterday when FOX59 used a simple public records request to find out that the doctor had filed a report to Department of Child Services and the Indiana Department of Health.
He should have “gathered evidence” before he opened his stupid mouth and inserted his manure-stained foot into it.
This “story” never happened.
Waited three days. Didn’t report it until she decided to use the story as abortion propaganda. Lied about the rapist’s age. But, most importantly, the girl never had to leave Ohio for an abortion. All theater, all propaganda.
You like being stupid and used for a fool, don’t you?
Oh, she filed a “terminated pregnancy report.” Yea! But what about a “suspected rape report with juvenile officers?” Did anyone, in either Ohio or Indiana, file that police report? I guess Comrade Greggie will tell us that there is no requirement for a doctor to report a crime against a minor.
Obviously not, because the suspected rapist was not arrested (or even identified) until pressure and doubt was put upon the entire story.
But, don’t loose sight of the prime fact: the story WAS an absolute lie. The girl never had to leave Ohio for an abortion. At least the Democrats exploiting this vile tragedy for their political purposes exposed the actual crime and identified the perp (we’ll just have to see if he sees any justice).
Still no answers to the questions from the original article:
who took the child to a doctor in the first place?
why did they choose a doctor that specializes in “child abuse?”
when did that occur?
We were told the Ohio doctor (supposedly) called the abortionist on June 27 and said the child was six weeks, three days pregnant. Why did the Indiana abortionist give the child an abortifacient designed for use in pregnant women less than six weeks gestation on June 30th?
Are there other children in the home that have not been removed from the mother who, it is now reported, is also pregnant by the illegal rapist? Was the raped 10 year old his daughter, as well?
Watch as this story quickly fades from the leftwing press.
Grggies says we dont want to care for born children, lets look at a baby formula shortage caused by this inept administration. They didnt know shutting down a factory that supplys 40 % of the formula would have a negative affect. Well lets just do 40 % of our grocery shop and see what happens….only clean 40 % of the poop in Joes depends and find out. Give Joe 40 % of his dementia meds….
This story is going to run perpetually, with an avalanche of reminders targeting every posturing GOP candidate who supports anti-freedom idiots. Not only that, but new stories will be added, because the GOP’s moronic, repressive laws will generate an unending stream of new cases.
You’ve done something that a majority of American voters disagreed with to begin with. You’ve taken away women’s fundamental right to exercise sovereign control over their own bodies, and you’ve created a situation where their privacy ALSO has to go out the window in order to enforce it.
Abortion is murder. The democrat party conducts the killing of babies as a sacrament to their gods of satan
Where in the Constitution does it say that “abortion is murder?” Where does it say that in any State’s constitution??
Comrade Greggie, since the U.S. Constitution does not address murder, I suppose you now believe that it should not be illegal to kill someone simply because they are in your way?
Robbing a bank is also NOT addressed by the U.S. Constitution.
What does that have to do with MAGA dick-heads robbing women of control of their own bodies?
Since you insist on continuing to prove what an idiot you are, I am now required to inform you that the “control” you speak of comes before conception, not after.
Or are you claiming that all women who become pregnant are victims of rape and didn’t choose to have unprotected sex?
You can’t even tell us what a woman is so what right do you have to speak on women’s rights?
Is THAT in the US Constitution, or any state’s constitution? Nope. It’s nothing more than your opinion—which, for some reason, you believe should rule the lives of others.
You have no liking for choice, personal freedom, or any other fundamental American value. You think the purpose of government is to force others to behave as you believe they should. It’s not enough that you have those choices and freedoms for yourself. They probably frighten you.
It isnt opinion it is actually in the constitution, what was not written was a states decision.
Robbing raping killing none of it is, God given rights those that are non negotiable things not even the States can outlaw, yet we get the congress senate and executives making gun laws breaking the oath of office.
What is control other than the “choice” you left wing nutcases are always shouting about while you want to remove “choice” from others.
When a woman (that you don’t know what that is) makes a choice to not have unprotected sex, does she get pregnant? Can she get pregnant watching the Don Lemon show? No, moron, she has to make the choice to give her body, which she controls, up to someone else to use. That is forfeiting the “control” you scream about otherwise she is being raped and that is also illegal.
But you are less worried about rape than you are about making sure you offer up the blood of unborn babies to your woke god.
That’s too crazy to comment on.
If you have no control over what happens to you, you cannot make choices on the events in your life. Sorry you’re too damn stupid to understand that.
You also don’t seem to understand cause and effect. Conception is the effect of the cause.
Women who “chose” to not participate in unprotected sex do not get pregnant unless they are artificially inseminated and then, that is their choice.
Did you manage to get out of the 7th grade? If you did, you should sue your former teachers.
That’s too crazy to comment on…..but you did.
You loved when they forced the jabby on people and masked people, closed down businesses. You and your ilk have lost any ground on bodily autonomy.
The Jabby never worked and they knew, the top people at the pharma companies could not travel cause no jabby 4 them. Not safe, not effective but give it to infants, FU and everyone like you.
They have control of their bodies. THEIR bodies.
Nowhere. Nowhere in the Constitution is abortion mentioned. The states determine what murder is
In the past couple of weeks greg has become OCD on abortion.
Note the Ukraine charade has turned into a disaster. Weapons intended to be used by Ukraine have found their way to the black markets of Europe and are in the hands of gangs etc.
Russia shows no signs of weakening their invasive intentions.
The economy is worse than it has ever been in American history.
And we will soon be upon the one year anniversary of the retreat and surrender of Afghanistan.
Very hard to find a reason to vote the democrat ticket
Yup, typical Greg MO. When the thing he obsessively comments on goes bad for him he ignored the topic and moves on to the next THE WALLS ARE CLOSING IN story.
Of course abortion is murder
07/14/22 – Rep. Eric Swalwell Points Out Misinformation From Anti-Choice Advocate
Truth is not the GOP’s friend. Their control is based on lies, deception, and disinformation.
Would that be the same Eric Swalwell that had extremely intimate relations with a Chinese spy?
Oh, why yes, it would be and this traitor is who you go to for an opinion?
Please, continue to provide just how big an idiot you are. It provides comic relief.
Yes, her name, Fang-Fang
He who farts during interview.
Did you have some comment about what he said, or the points he made? Nope. Because all he said is true.
Swalwell is a compromised traitor to our country.
He lies, bombastically and will the intelligence of a carrot.
And then when the FBI warned him about her being a spy, he warned her so she could escape.
Fartsmell is not a person I look to for integrity or credibility. Remember, he was caught screwing a CCP spy, then warned her when the FBI notified him how stupid he was. It was a lie that the girl had to travel out of Ohio to get an abortion.
The only choice involved in an abortion is the premeditated choice to murder the unborn, full stop.
